Coronado Hills Families,
I am very excited to be the Principal at Coronado Hills. I have been looking forward to leading Coronado Hills Elementary and developing a strong partnership with parents and community who support student learning. I look forward to meeting everyone throughout the year.
This is my 17th year in education. I taught for 9 years and was an assistant principal for 5 years. Before coming to Coronado Hills, I was the Principal at Namaqua Elementary. I was the assistant principal at Coronado Hills 3 years ago, so if you recognize the name…that is why. I have 2 boys, one in third and one sixth grade, and my wife is a school counselor in Adams 12 Five Star Schools.
Our mission for Coronado Hills is to work collaboratively to inspire compassionate, inquiring, lifelong learners who think critically and care about the world around them. Our vision of Coronado Hills is to ignite the culture and passion of learning to reach our highest potential and develop open-minded critical thinkers, who believe the journey is as great as the destination. The mission and vision of our school is for our students to be globally minded and 21st century learners. This prepares our students for their educational journey.
In February 2015 we were authorized for the International Baccalaureate Primary Years program. This amazing program supports our students by developing thinkers, learners and character through inquiry. We develop thinkers and learners by using the PYP framework that is developed collaboratively with our staff. This program of inquiry from Kindergarten to 5th grade will help our students become critical thinkers and develop a love for learning.
I want to say again how grateful I am to lead a group of kind students and dedicated educators. I appreciate all the parent support. Let me know if you have any questions and I look forward to the school year.
